|Don't panic Eileen, that looks like it maybe a nice tattoo. My daughter has one on each inside wrist, a compass, and a mountain range, quite delicate thank goodness, to go with her travel/adventurous personality.|
sorry about the crick in the neck, theres some christmas bags, in an attempt to go "green" and chest of drawers, i decorated. interior design was a thing in my hobbies/ qualifications before I hit the sewing machine from my youthe. I amm Vowing not to buy any more fabric, as I really wont use what i have, am wondering where I can donate locally, noit sure the charity shops will appreciate it.
|Happy New year to everyone hope it will be a good healthy happy year.|
Winnie, I am so pleased to hear your news, I really hope the doctors can sort you out, and you have a good if not great new year.
|Sorry to hear about Sheila, whilst I didn't know her personally , I recall her many posts on this friendly page. Condolences to her family and friends.|
|Taking this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Christmas with a healthy and successful New year.|

|Hope you can make good use of my inexperienced effort, maybe trimming down for an odd corner somewhere. I am well aware that my skills fall short of many members.|
|Thread: Christmas Challenge....make a Christmas stocking for charity.|
|6,4,8 are my choices, well done everyone.|
|I'm considering getting a die cutting machine, for strips and squares and triangles up to six inch. To organize my huge fq stash. |
Can anyone give me advice, I have no experience of these whatsoever, how do you know what die cutters are needed etc? I've Google it but not really sure. I don't want to spend more than ?100. Preferably a lot less, as I think the dies are extra? Thanks, Maria.
love your monsters Rosemary, Im not a halloween person though. stems from chikdhood, and leaving a broom outside the door so the witches knew not to bother us. I did read on fb that someone put tabletsor drugs ofsomesort in a childs goodie bag, oh dear, i remember pins in apples one year in the 70's.
went to watch ..finally.... a concert that my daughter was lighting, in brighton, a band called superorganism. i didnt think i would enjoy it, but i was jiggling away, the performance outweighed the tunes, which didnt sound great on their own. she said it was rubbish lighting and a shh venue, but i thought it was good, I await the next performance invite,somewhen, when she thinks it will be better.
went to an " escape room" for sons birthday, we managed to work out all the clues, but I think you need to do a couple to get the hang of it. although we were stuffed to the gills with sweet waffles and ice cream... a definate sugar overload. he had mates over on the day ..lovely to hear laughter and chat, I hid in my room, and read a book. (it was his 21st)
mojo is still missing, its about somewhere...
dog has got her annual tummy problems, we really dont know what she is picked up from somewhere despite close supervision
|I have some lovely pastel rainbow strips lined up for a project somewhen that would look great in a bargello design. Project waist coat using a furry style sweatshirt, butchering the arms off. I have far to many ideas/stash/ufo's.|
|Happy birthday Winnie 🎂🍾 |
I'm sure Rosemary wouldn't get it wrong 😉
Even so hope you are settling in well and can relax a bit. 😘
Love Maria. X
|Lovely blocks girls. Just thought I would highlight an article by myta of sew sew easy, which highlights a scientific article about how quilting can aid depression. It's quite long, but worth the read.|
|Just a thought, how's Katy? And Fiona, haven't heard from them for a while. And a few others from the crew. |
|Thread: Show and Tell 2018|
|Love that cassini quilt Margaret, I have a similar design in my head, with much larger pieces for my my night is your day. Still accumulating the required novelty fabrics though.. 😱 Not much space left in my room for them though! Maria|
|Thread: Friendship Swap 2016/7|
|Oh Margaret, I do empathise, I've been having one health issue, after another lately. I hope you soon get some respite from your epilepsy, and all its related problems. My mum was epileptic, so I have a, small idea of what your suffering. I hope your move goes well despite, all this. Love Maria.|
sent DH off to the dart sailing championships with some bunting from makower, hope it doesnt get pinched.
I am feeling a bit sorry for myself, having had scan/endoscopy/colposcopy in the space of 2 weeks, feeling a little tender. lets hope it sorts out whatever problems are going on inside so I can finally sort out the diabetes and boob replacement that is still outstandin. roll on Christmas ( my next personal deadline hope)
sewing has taken a bit of a backseat, but I have made a couple of bags and skirt. and spent a lot whilst surfing under my quilt.

Id like to help but cant promise anything as I am having health issues at the moment, but I am happy to make contrribution/ jellyroll strips.

|Oh wow rosemary, that looks like a challenge and a half. Im sure you will make, a fantastic job of it. have a block a day still half unfinished, one day,....😱 |
|Thread: Popular Patchwork Announcement|
|Sue, your house sounds like mine, I have tried all the hobbies under the sun, and have the boxes of stuff to prove it. My parents encouraged me to do lots of things, as mum was epileptic, pretty unmanagable at the time, my outdoor activities were limited, but I'm now a very capable Jill of all trades.|
I have at least 5 years worth of "torn out" dressmaking and knitting pattern from the 80's also up for grabs if anyone's interested.
